that senator obama joined us on the trip was he wanted to get a firsthand impression about iraq and afghanistan, and also, he wanted a perspective from someone who was a republican, clearly republican, but also a combat veteran, someone who had a great feel for the military. i can't speculate about senator mccain's reaction. i can say, though, john mccain is one of the -- he is serious about all the issues. he is treating this nomination like everything he --s with great seriousness, and i commend him for that. >> we're just learning that at least the associated press and the boston globe both reporting that scott brown will not be running for the seat next toor to you in rhode island. what do you think of that, since he was widely viewed as the biggest challenge to a perspective democrat running for that open seat? of course, the john kerry seat. >> i -- all politics is local. i'm a little surprised, but i -- my reaction would be that he has made a decision. he knows better than anyone what's it like to serve in the senate, what is it like to run for the senate, and you have to thank him for h
voted against it. senator obama voted against it, senator biden voted against it and senator lugar voted against it. as to the iranian red line, the persian gulf and some of the iranian questions, i support the president's strong position on containment as i have said. i will speak more specifically to a couple of the examples you used from my book. his position is i think right and when you ask the question of our red lines, i think the president has gone as far as he should go publicly. he has said clearly that in his words, he has israel's back. he said his policy is not to allow the iranians to get a nuclear weapon. what constitutes when action would be taken, that is always something that should not be discussed publicly or debated in the public domain. your quotations from my book which you acknowledge i always said the military option should be on the table and i have said that consistently as well as engaging with iran, i have always thought it is a far smarter to approach these very serious threats, including iran, probably as significant a threat we have out there today, althou
attack on the obama administration. and on regular americans all across the country. senate republicans are vowing to block richard cadre, president obama's pick to head the consumer financial protection bureau. that's the agency elizabeth warren set up to make sure big banks don't prey on regular americans. but, today, 43 republicans sent a letter saying they're worried the agency has too much power over the banks. and they won't allow the nomination to go ahe. this is outrageous. the right wing is doing everything it can to block this president. to stand against working class people. and to stand up for wall street. that i had' they're even willing to hurt the economy itself. it's that's what it takes to hurt the president, they're willing to do it. >> any immediate economic setback or the perception of one could weaken obama's clout. maybe a sour economy is worth it if it will distract obama. >> there's a lot of talk these days about how the gop can come back politically. the quickest possible way politically with a contracting economy, if it happened again in the next quarter, that'
on senator hagel was not actually hagel himself today. it was president obama. because senator hagel's positions are identical to those of president obama, vice president biden, secretary of state kerry, in fact the vast majority of the security establishment in the united states. that we are stuck with an obsolete arsenal of nuclear weapons that have little relevance to the threats we face today of cybersecurity, of nuclear terrorism, of unrest in the middle east, and every dollar that we're spending on these nuclear weapons is taking money away from the troops, preventing us from giving the weapons that they really need. these senators are stuck in a position of defending a 120th century arsenal that has little relevance in today's world. >> and hearing them read their talking points about this today, awkwardly read these talking points as if they do not come naturally to them and they have been told to read them made me feel like the reason i wanted you to hear inhofe say it how awkwardly he said it is because it makes me wonder what constituencies these senators are speaking for,
's by president obama or senator feinstein or you, that would actually work, i think we've got to stop talking about what makes us feel better and what maybe -- and what actually works or what sounds good because when the emotions are this raw for all of us, we all want to, quote, do something, but we have to do something that works. the fact is in the three massacres we're talking about, aurora, tucson, and newtown, these guys had their guns legally. i mean, i hate saying their names so i say the tucson shooter, he passed an instant background check, and the assault weapons ban had failed in his case, the guy in aurora still would have had the other two weapons he used to commit his crimes. >> kellyanne. you skillfully avoided my question, which is do you agree with the sandy hook father's premise that the right of his child's life supersedes the right to own a high-powered weapon or high capacity magazine. >> we have something called the second amendment. if politicians out there don't like it, they're going to have to amend the constitution. you're not going to get very far because as you s

. that is frankly a vision president obama has espoused and people should be concerned with respect to senator hagel as well >> sean: i know he is from nebraska and i'm not sure how that makes him more qualified. with all due respect to governor richardson, they seem to ignore these statements. he was talking about unilateral disarmament and the comments about iran and variety of other things. more disconcerted to go me is comments about israel. lindsay graham laid him out today. i almost was embarrassed for the former senator. >> it was embarrassing because you had to sit back and think, wait a second. this is man the president of the united states wants to put in command of our armed forces. first of all, think about the obligation we have to the men and women in uniform. we owe them the best. this certainly is not the best. we watch this performance by somebody who failed to comprehend the most fundamental threats as a nation. at one point he talked about the fact he didn't imagine he would be in charge of anything. you couldn't make up how baffled and dazed and confused he appeared. these senato

? >> it starts out with flushing out a plan, a real viable plan from president obama. how about having the senate pass a budget which they haven't done in four years. one good things in terms of the house suspending the debt limit, giving the democrats time to pass a budget so we have something to compromise with. why don't you guys get along. i'm happy to work with anybody that to acknowledge the problem, but it's hard to compromise when you don't even have a viable plan. the last two budgets voted on three times. >> greta: i lay the blame on harry reid. house had a budget, maybe good or but the senator never let it be brought to the floor so give and take negotiations. however, where i casted the blame back at president obama he submitted the budget is why didn't he pick up the phone and tell his party leader, harry reid, get a budget so we can at least have a conversation. >> listen, these are such important issues. i hate these back room deals. we voted on the fiscal cliff at 1:40 in the morning on new year's day. >> greta: who read it? >> i prevented 99% of americans from getting an income t

something in the senate and president obama and vice president biden continue to prioritize this and put the pressure on, do you think -- it's possible something will pass. i'm surprised that this is -- has had the political staying power it has. i've seen so many other school shootings and massacres come and go where people talk about action and it didn't happen. but you know, the nra is still dug in, they're not giving any ground. and i think that, you know, as a classic case where you have a very popular support for changes. but it's not necessarily intense. whereas you have a very intense organized lobby in the nra and members of congress who feel incredibly strongly on the other side, you know, it's often a formula for stalemate. so i think it remains to be seen. but you're not seeing a lot of movement on the part of republicans right now. and at the end of the day, they can -- they'll determine whether anything passes that's significant. >> but, michael brings up a question, which is what exactly senator reid is going to be willing to bring to the senate floor. because the democrat

senate friends. because today republican senators looked like they were competing for an oscar. they tried to see which one could act the most outraged at president obama's defense secretary nominee. former republican senator chuck hagel was grilled during his confirmation hearings. senator john mccain took the lead and set the tone early on. >> our concerns pertain to the quality of your professional judgment and your worldview on critical areas of national security, including security in the middle east. >> john mccain did not always have grave concerns about chuck hagel's worldview. in fact, he named chuck hagel a co-chair of his 2000 presidential campaign. >> my fellow americans, i introduce you to a great republican, a great american leader, my friend, john mccain! >> how come mccain didn't get that kind of greeting, huh? or hagel, should i say. not only were hagel and mccain good buddies, john mccain wanted to give hagel the exact job he's up for right now. he told voters in new hampshire, "there's a lot of people that could be secretary of state -- secretary of defense.
really gave an issue to barack obama who as a state senator was out there in chicago in probably a liberal district and he voted against the war without worry being it. she hedged her bets and voted for the war and i think that was her biggest impediment to the winning. i don't think she has that kind of impediment this time around. >> no, and she learned how to communicate with working class folks. if you remember, chris, four or five years ago, hillary clinton's biggest problem was working class women, blue collar women. yet by the end of that campaign, she was racking up huge majorities in west virginia and kentucky and pennsylvania and places like that, and she attracted those working class women. she was like a rock star in the parades we went to in scranton and pittsburgh and places like that. so she learned to communicate as a populist, as a real populist. that will hold her in good stead. i think she learned to save some money for contingencies. remember, if they had any money after super tuesday, i think they would have been the nominee but they spent all their money and
the state department employees a final time. a hearse successor senator john kerry will be sworn in later today. a rough day on capitol hill for president obama's defense secretary nominee chuck hagel. during his confirmation hearings, senator john mccain sharply criticized him for opposing the troops surge in iraq. republicans grilled him about his past statements on israel, iran, and nuclear weapons. he will face a confirmation vote next week's. >> we are just two days away from the super bowl. >> all the excitement building up to a point where we can only imagine john gonzalez cannot contain himself. let's go to him now in the big easy. >> morning. as you can see this morning, i have replaced my necktie with some beads. this is a live picture of bourbon street at this hour. thousands still out. we spent time talking to the so- called freaks of bourbon street. >> ♪ ♪ >> the ravens or the 49ers? >> the ravens. >> how long can you stay like this? >> forever. eric samuah the big winner? definitely going to be the 49ers.
